From text: "Utilizing Abdelkebir Khatibiâs Le Livre du Sang, I will analyze the roles of sex,
gender, and sexuality as socially4 inscribed onto the body through the various determining
categories of: active/passive, secrecy/disclosure, purity/impurity, tattooed/un-tattooed,
visible/invisible, identification/repulsion (or identification/repudiation), and abject5/sacred.
In this text, the body becomes the field of play, of creation, whereby performance
determines and often alters the traditional identities of gender and sexuality (and
sometimes of sex)."
